Wheel-click on any window tab always closes the current one

SQL Prompt is a great tool.
However, I discovered an annoying effect in my SQL Server 2005 Management Studio after installing SQL Prompt 4.0 Trial

The usual SSMS behavior of wheel clicking on a document / query tab is to close the clicked window - as Visual Studio and most new browsers do.

After installing SQL Prompt, wheel-clicking any window always closes the active one! This behavior is prone to data loss, and inconsistent with the emerging standards.

I made a quick survey on my co-workers, and the same effect happens in SQL Prompt 3.9

Workaround: uninstall SQL Prompt and everything goes back to normal :(

    Many thanks for your post and apologies for inconvenience caused.

    I tired to replicate your problem but it works fine for me.

    I followed following steps:

    1. Opened multiple window in SSMS.
    2. Using the mouse wheel I clicked to close one of the query window and it did close the one intended.

    Kindly let me know if I misunderstood your post.

    If yes kindly let me know exact steps you followed.
